School Health Advisory Committee

In 2005, the 79th legislature passed SB42. This comprehensive school health education package focused on a number of significant issues; one of which was the establishment of a state-level School Health Advisory Committee at the Department o f State Health Services (DSHS). The text of the statute, now codified in the Health and Safety Code, can be found at , Title 12 of Chapter 1001, Subchapter D, Section 1001.0711: SCHOOL HEALTH ADVISORY COMMITTEE.
